I believe WMGN airs AT40 the 70s twice on Saturdays. The 6am CST airing is the replay from last week. The Saturday 9 pm CST airing will be the scheduled broadcast. WMGN used to air AT10 at 6am. When Casey retired, WMGN replaced it with last weeks airing of AT40 the 70s.
The 100000 watts website says 243 radio stations are all Xmas at this typing. At this rate, you will have to listen to newsradio to avoid all Xmas.
The part that amazes me, the AT40 the 70s/80s stations that flipped to all Xmas are not airing the AT10 Christmas shows. WNIC is the only station to my knowledge that is airing them. Those national sponsors must not be happy of their ads not being aired.
Are the AT10 Christmas shows being offered to affiliates easily? Or do they have to make a considerable effort to even find out if the shows are available? I would hope Premiere would send out one of their holiday memos offering the shows.
WNIC are WRVF are still all Xmas. Looking at WRVF's 'when to stop Xmas music' poll, they will have Xmas music until 12/30/09.
I found that WNIC-FM in Detroit returned to their regular programming. Do they air the AT40: The 70s show at the same time slot they aired the AT10 Christmas show in the last few weeks (Sundays at 10 am - 1 pm EST)?
It's "Gen X" radio for Tulsa Published on Monday, December 28, 2009
Clear Channel’s classic hits “Kool 106.3” KQLL ends many weeks of Christmas stunting today (12/28) at noon, debuting the much-rumored “Gen X Radio” that will feature grunge (Nirvana, etc.), hip-hop, hair bands and boy bands. The Gen X mix will cover the ground from Eminem and Madonna to Dave Matthews Band and U2, says Regional Market Manager Bill Hurley. Don Cristi is the ops manager for Gen X Radio, which takes new call letters of KTGX.
Uh Oh! It's the middle of October. There will only be 3 more weekends left until some AT40 70s/80s stations will flip to all Xmas. The 100000watts.com site has no stations flip as of this typing. However, in a few weeks, get ready to find other stations that air AT40 70s/80s.

What puzzles me is that Premiere doesn't take advantage of the growing number of Gen X stations and offer some of the AT40/CT40 shows covering that period. AT40 with Shadoe (1988-1995), Casey's Top 40 (1989-1998) and AT40 with Casey (1998-2004) would all fit into that category. Perhaps some of the later AT40 with Casey from the 80s would even fit .
That way, Premiere could keep those stations broadcasting their shows even after they change format.
